Cambridge Course Boasts Plenty of Challenge

Golfers had better bring their “A” games when playing the semiprivate Cambridge Golf Club in Evansville, Indiana. Designed by Tom Liddy, a disciple of Pete Dye, the 7,011-yard layout places a premium on shot-making. It boasts nine lakes, a whopping 260 pot and flat-bottom bunkers, fairway mounds like those found along Scottish links, and well-trapped, undulating greens with tall fescue-grass peripheries.

Cambridge Golf Club is part of a planned 368-acre village that will eventually have 500 Colonial- and New England-style homes as well as retail and entertainment facilities. The modern links-style layout had an unofficial opening July 15, 2000; a grand opening is slated for later this spring.

The clubhouse will open at the start of the 2002 season. Currently under construction, the 20,000-square-foot structure will feature banquet facilities, a restaurant open to the public, and a private areas for members. There will be a “halfway house” located between the 9th and 10th holes as the layout is continuous and does not return to the clubhouse at the turn.

Work on the village is set to begin in 2001 and will take about two years to complete. There is an assortment of homes for sale: estate, single-family, patio homes and condominiums. The village will also have a swimming pool, tennis courts, retail stores and office spaces. For information on the residential units, contact Ben Fitzpatrick at 812/867-9500.
